Each spring, the Pioneer Power Association has a huge swap fest just outside of
Le Sueur, MN. It is billed as the largest of its type in the country. Old tractors, antiques, junk, and stuff. I spent a few hours there this morning with the K100D and DA 50-200mm...















Basically, if you can't find it here, you aren't looking hard enough

Nice pictures. There is something similar here in February called the Florida Flywheelers show. My wife's uncle drives down from Pennsylvania every year to attend with my father in law. From your pics, it looks like I should hit it with them next year.

Nice series, Rickst. It really conveys the atmosphere of the swap fest. Language thing: I never heard the word "fest" in English before. In Swedishit means "party", thus a very frequently used word.

Kjell, it pretty much means the same thing in English. Fest would be the root of festive (a party mood or atmosphere) and festival (a large, generally organized,party).
